Opera Software Since the announcement from Opera about submitting Opera Mini to the App Store made it to the front page, I can't really relegate the application's admittance into the App Store to the side column - I'm not particularly liked by the Apple fans as it is. So, here it goes, full frontal: Apple has accepted Opera Mini into the App Store.

Sorry, it's completely off topic but since both of you are here, I've a website suggestion; allow registered users to change there alias. I signed up after a few other sites which all separated the login name and displayed alias along with allowing alias to be changed after the fact. It was somewhat of an unpleasant surprise to find out that I couldn't change my displayed alias. My only option now, having learned the registration bugs, is to delete my account and open an entirely new one assuming it's not going to trip over the same email address being used.

If either of you are the webdeveloper or can contact them directly; fixing the alias bug would be a great benefit to the registered visitors.

Thats not a bug, it's a feature.
If people were able to change their alias' it would be hard to keep track of the community.

I say, allow a user to change their alias once a year.

You could still track the ID number or user account behind the scenes. From the visitor view, some user changing there displayed alias should be pretty obvious. On other sites, it will actually change your alias on past (within recent history?) comments so changing an alias is not going to allow someone to escape from stupid opinions.

If the display alias is the only way to track the community, that would be a second bug to report.
